clinton runs for president, does that mean you won't run? isn't that what you have said? biden couldn't have been more emphatic. he said he never said he wouldn't run if hillary did. quote, whether she runs or not will not affect my decision. he went on to say that his wife jill was supportive of his decision, and that being a good vice president the next several years was a perfect way to make himself a solid presidential candidate. so are we ready? is the democratic party ready for this? is the country ready for a showdown between the vice president of the united states and the former first lady, former u.s. senator, former secretary of state? and why is biden saying all this now? and who is he saying it to? is he serving notice to secretary clinton that the presidential nomination is not hers for the asking? is it to tell bill clinton that this march through a second clinton presidency is going to be a bit messy? is it to tell the democrats overall out in the country that they'll have a choice in the winter and spring of 2016? well, the question for me, why is joe biden, an experie

, it was when the clinton administration was trying to reform health care. in april 1993, he had a big meeting scheduled at the white house with then first lady hillary clinton. the goal was to get congressman mcdermott on board with the clinton administration's approach to health reform as they tried to get it passed through congress. the day before that meeting, hillary clinton's staff, we now know, sent her this memo prepping her for that meeting with congressman mcdermott, quote, we need to keep him happy and on our side. quote, as staged and pr presumptuous as that is, you might suggest you throw out all the staff at the end of the meeting to have a private relationship with him, this will signal your closeness with him. the efforts by the clinton white house to woo certain members of congress are kind of fascinating to read about in this gritty level of detail. these details are spelled out in documents released today. 33,000 pages of documents from the clinton white house are going to be made public in the coming days. who knows if it's going to be anything substantive that we didn't kn

. he lost in 1992 to bill clinton. clinton wins with 43% of the vote roughly, that was it. because of the third party candidacy of who? ross perot. clinton didn't get over 50% of the vote. george bush gets in without winning a majority of votes and then 2004 the second bush testimony, bush leaves office, bush around 2007 had the worst gallup approval numbers of any president since harry truman. barack obama. obama wins in 2008. 2012 obama actually is the first president in history -- though he was the first democrat, i believe, since lbj to get over 50% of the vote -- but in 2012 he was elected with, first president to do this, elected with less popular votes and electoral college votes in his re-election. reagan won 49 out of 50 states in his re-election, obama won 26. a bare majority. and if you look at a map of counties, right, under reagan it was a sea of red. under obama it was still a sea of red. if you look, if you look at counties. and speaking, speaking of obama, there was a poll done in 2013 after the 2013 -- after the second inaugural which asked americans if ronald reag
clinton. he won 43 percent of the vote because of the third-party candidate of ross perot. clinton 1986 did not get over 50 percent come the 2000 george to be bush gets in without even winning a majority then 2004 the second bush term peaveys office said in 2007 had the worst gallup approval numbers since truman. obama 2008. 2012 obama is the first president in history the first democrat since lbj to get over 50 percent but 2012 he was elected with less popular votes than electoral college votes. reagan won 49 added 50 states obama had 26. but they are majority. looking at the map of counties under reagan was the sea of red under obama still a sea of red. speaking of obama, there was a pulled the in 2013 after the 20,132nd inaugural that asked americans if ronald reagan were to run today against barack obama who food you vote for? reagin. 58%. right after his election here is what is really fascinating who elected it was the use felt they would ask pate -- people who would you vote for? they would pick ronald reagan. . . to put in whichever name they wanted. who is the greatest american
the clinton administration and congress last raised the gas tax. that was 21 years ago when gasoline was $1.08 and i wonder if barack had even met michelle and there it remained for 21 years. due to inflation and fuel economy increases, the average cost per mile that the american motorist pays to the federal government for transportation has been cut in half. i went on the budget and the ways and means committee the last eight years in order to deal with this issue, but frankly i'm tired of waiting. i introduced a gas tax increase phased in over three years to fully fund a six-year re-authorization. was pleased to be joined by friends during my bill introduction by the u.s. chamber, the afl-cio, truckers and a.a.a., transit, local government, environmentalists, road builders. i find it hard to say people will say this will be a heavy lift because there's little support for it. when chairman camp offered $150 billion last week in his tax reform bill, what president obama suggested $300 billion, where was their broad base of support? maybe that's why both proposals were called dead on arrival
clinton as a glamorous figure, and we can talk about that more. i think of him as a charismatic figure, a highly charismatic figure, and that is different, but, yes, i would say there is a lot of glamour going on, and first of all, he has got sunglasses on, and sunglasses is one of the best way. >> why? >> well, it is mostly because they create mystery. you are not completely hidden. you can still see your face, but there is that sort of mystery and distance, and we talk about jackie and her sunglasses, and he is very graceful. and the other thing which is nowadays hard to remember is how young he seem in 1992 in a positive way. he did not seem young as in not ready for president. i read never talking to my sister-in-law who was a big fan of the clinton-gore team, and it was great to vote for them because you felt the young people had arrived, and this moment has that kind of -- oh, would it not be great if the president were in sync with popular culture, and i think particularly for a younger audience, the idea that he did this was very glamorous. >> recently, we did a series on all t
were constantly not only fighting bill clinton, the president at that time, but fight against some of the things our old leadership was doing because we didn't come back to be just a mindless lemon for the elephant over the donkey, but came back with value, and that was to get our government spending down to live within our means, to get fair taxes that don't ruin people's businesses and their lives, and we believe the things the republican party had been saying. that was our big crime, but they called us a big boy republican, and now to be referred to as a tea party patriot makes my life easier. didn't like the bad boy republican thing, but i just want you to know what brought me back because i left for 12 years, and when i left, having set term limits, i never thought i would come back to congress again, because when i left, we had actually balanced the budget for the first time in 40 # years. in 1998, we balanced the budget. 1999, we blnsed the budget, and in 2000, not only was it balanced, but had a 240 billion some surplus. the frl budget was 1.7 trillion. i fast forward, i'm
. we were constantly having to fight bill clinton, and fight against some of the things our leadership was doing. we did not come back to be a mindless lemming elephant over the donkey. we came back with bellies. to bring government spending don't. to live within our means. to get fair taxes. we actually believed the things that the republican party stood for. that too is our big crime. they called us the bad boy republicans. now, to be referred to as a tea party patriot makes my life a lot easier. my wife did not like the bad boy republican thing. i want you to know what brought me back because i left for 12 years. i kept my term limit pledge. i never thought i would come back again. when i left, we had balanced the budget for the first time in 40 years. in 1998 we balance the budget. the year i left, in 2000, we have a $247 billion surplus. the federal budget was $1.7 trillion. fast forward 12 years, i see what happened 2010, with you glorious patriots standing up and fighting against the most to radical -- tyrannical president that we have ever had in the history of america. my juic
red lines ever since we began to move nato toward russia in the 1990s. clinton began it. bush continued it. obama rhetorically has continued it. the ultimate red line, and unlike perhaps obama, putin really believes in red lines, was ukraine. what putin saw happening in ukraine, for him, and we can argue whether it was or isn't, it was a direct threat to russian national security in the form of crimea. and so he reacted. >> why would steven hadley, who is a big shot in the bush administration be now pushing for nato membership for ukraine? which as i said in the opening would mean we would have to fight the russians personally and directly if they interfered in ukraine, if that were the case. if we put them in nato, then we're all the way on the front lines ourselves. why would this country want to bring our front all the way to the border between ukraine and russia? what would be the national interest in doing that? >> i have to make a generalization. what we're witnessing in this crisis in ukraine, and essentially, it's moving the old metaphorical curtain in berlin right to
. it was over 20 years ago that the congress passed and president bill clinton signed the federal religious freedom restoration act. the supreme court later ruled that that couldn't apply to the states, so many states including arizona -- arizona is only one of 18 states that have adopted these type of laws. this is a minor amendment to this law. >> would you please educate our friend why this bill is so obnoxious and horrible. >> i do appreciate that it actually has bland language, but what it will really do is say to folks that you can deny services, you can deny serving someone because you believe that it's wrong to serve gay and lesbian folks. and that's why, john mccain, senator mccain, senator flake, both republican senators in arizona have said, let's not do this. veto this bill. i truly think that the local chamber of commerce, marriott, apple have come out against this. they know it will create an intolerant atmosphere for gay and lesbian folks in arizona and arizona should say no. >> first of all, arizona does not currently include sexual orientation as a protected category under
11 of us constantly having to not only fight bill clinton was the president but fight against some of the things that our leaders were doing. we did not come back to be some mind the slumming. we actually came back with values, to get government spending down, live within our means committee of fair taxes that don't ruin businesses. and we actually believe the things that the republican party had been singing. they call this the bad boy republicans. now to be for two as the tea party patriot it makes my wife a lot easier. she did not like the bad boy republican thing. amelie to know what brought me back. i left for 12 years. when i left i never thought i would come back to congress again. when i left the in actually balance the budget for the first time in 40 years. not only do they balance the budget billion at june june $47 billion surplus. when i fast forward, and none of it for 12 years. i see what happens in 2010, glorious patriots standing up and fighting in against the most tyrannical president of we ever had in the history of america. and my juices start flowing. d'agata en
offered mupty in exchange for that testimony. mike. >> big news. we'll be covering that. >>> the clinton files are being unfiled. there's an enormous effort to humanize hillary back in the days of the clinton white house. is there still a push to make her media friendly? and will these revelations impact hillary in 2016? joining us now, howard kurtz, host of media buzz here on the fox news channel. good to see pup. >> good morning, mike. >> i guess she was being coached by this mandy grunw aye ld, right? >> among others, yes, one of they are key advisers. one of the documents we found said don't be defensive. the press is obviously watching to see if they can make you uncomfortable or testy. look for opportunities for humor. it's important that people see more sides of you and they often see only in very stern situations your behavior. be careful to be real. wow. how can you teach someone to be real? >> are you kidding me? every politician gets this sort of advice. you can't fake sincerity. there are other memos which hillary clinton is during her husband's presidency in the '90s was tol
remains extremely important. i think i secretary clinton, secretary kerry, the president of the training has had on so many occasions that this will not in military. there ought to be some way for reconciliation to be possible. the second principle as well, which is i always felt in the time i had this responsibility, and this kind of diplomacy has got to be backed by force. it isn't necessarily backed by american force but this, idea if you're in gave of reconciliation is another reason to be in favor of a sign to be bsa. another favor for american forces and international forces and it's a very important reason to be in favor of continued support for afghan national security forces it seems to me that taliban is watching very carefully how we work our way through these next few months to decide whether be any pressure on them to make this step toward reconciliation so the effect of the military effort, international and afghan, still is really important third point seems to me on reconciliation as you look back and circling makes you think about it very carefully and watching the film
needed to turn to a 68 year old woman who would be hillary clinton. [laughter] [applause] but i digress. now as you heard from my friend jeff lord, gerald ford went on to lose to a very weak democratic candidate named jimmy carter. reagan went on to win in 1980 and 1984 to the a distant landslide in american history. popular vote, i would remind karl rove and the electoral college.

-pass it again three years later. then it was signed by president clinton and became law. and acted 20 years ago. the one thing i want to do is encourage everybody in the future that is working on this important issue -- it is important. to include all sales and background checks. you have just heard the reason why. theeral examples of it -- internet and gun shows. i want to encourage everybody that just because there's a public outcry does not mean that we are going to get a bill passed. it takes work and it takes time. it takes persistence. with that, we will win again. i have no doubt whatsoever. it will be a proud day and i want come back over here the day passes. i promise i will not leave until then.
